Tumor cells release circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) into the bloodstream, which is collected through liquid biopsies. ctDNA analysis provides abundant information about tumors, but can be limited by the rarity of ctDNA in the total circulating DNA fragment pool. To overcome this challenge, researchers turn to advanced next generation sequencing (NGS) technology.
